Tuesday, 31 July 2007

Patrick Knowles Designs (PKD) has been named the interior design firm for the 161-foot Trinity motoryacht Blind Date.


Conceived as a contemporary vessel with classic lines, Blind Date will feature a very clean, uncluttered, yet sophisticated and elegant interior. Her interior will implement design features, such as leather floors, open pore wood surfaces and tumbled marble. 

“This wonderful juxtaposition of materials will be unique to the style of her interior,” said Patrick Knowles, president of PKD. “Light and shimmering textiles will adorn the furnishings and décor, which will be reminiscent of Old Hollywood from the 1940’s,” added Patrick, noting that the owner of Blind Date is a repeat customer of PKD.           

The open plan of the Main Salon and Dining Salon will feature an aft entry reception area, perfect for social gatherings, which will be accommodated by a bar and loose seating. The Salon, featuring a centralized seating group, will be divided from the Dining Salon by a low profile, hand-stitched, leather cabinet.  A floor-to-ceiling wine cellar will serve as a dramatic divider between the Dining Salon and Main Deck foyer entrance.

Unlike many other vessels her size, Blind Date will have a grand Sundeck dedicated to her owners and their guests. It will be called the “Resort Deck” and will feature a center line hot tub with custom mosaics, flanked by lounge seating, dining areas and a wet bar.  Located aft on the Resort Deck will be a loose seating group more reminiscent of a South Beach resort than a megayacht.  The entire Resort Deck will be draped in a smart and sophisticated arrangement of canopies. These dynamic canopies will allow for a lot of flexibility for sunning and shading activities.

With four Guest Staterooms below deck, a split-level Master Suite on the Main Deck, and a phenomenal Resort Deck, Blind Date will feature the finest amenities for luxury cruising. Delivery is scheduled for 2009.

Patrick Knowles Designs is currently designing four of the eighteen superyachts presently under construction at Trinity Yachts, as well as a number of other projects.
